Michael Owen predicts Leicester v Arsenal, has advice for Arsene Wenger

Michael Owen looks ahead to Saturday’s Premier League clash between Leicester City and Arsenal at the King Power Stadium.

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Colossusbets.com that the game between Leicester City and Arsenal this weekend could end in a draw.

Leicester will face Arsenal at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday, and former Liverpool star Owen believes that the Foxes may be able to pick up a point.

The former England international has also suggested that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger should not include Germany international attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil in his starting lineup.

“They (Arsenal) have too much talent at their disposal to continue to underperform, and struggle in front of goal, for too long – especially against the lesser teams – and I think they can end Leicester’s unbeaten start to the season by a score line of 2-1,” Owen wrote on Colossusbets.com.

“If I were Wenger, I’d leave Ozil on the bench, as I don’t think he is playing to the required level at the minute.”

“You have to take your hat off to the Foxes, and they again showed plenty of character and prowess in front of goal when pulling back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Stoke,” added the Englishman.

“And they beat the Hammers in extra-time in the Cup on Tuesday night, too, to continue their excellent run. So I will add 1-1, the score line in this fixture last season, and Any Other Draw (AOD).”

Owen seems to favour a win for Arsenal, but he is not entirely discounting the possibility a draw for Leicester.

Heading into the encounter, the Gunners will be considered favourites even though they are the visiting team.

Arsenal have a superior team with better players, and they will certainly be determined to build on their 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in the third round of the League Cup in midweek.

Leicester, though, will fancy their chances of at least collecting a draw from the match, but in the end they may not be able to do that.
